Hey people…How are you all doing?
I was so occupied with office yesterday, that couldn’t post anything here in the blog…
Moving on, I wanted to review this Clinique High Impact Mascara that I received in my September Vellvette Box. (my very first box!)
I had been using this product atleast 4-5 days a week in the last 2 months and wanted to review this before I throw this one out.. 🙂
Price: INR 1350 for 7 ml.
Shelf life: 3 months since opening. (Originally 3 yrs from mfg.date)
I received a sample size of this mascara as mentioned.
It s a pretty black tube with tiny green sparkle all over. Decent enough for a sample size. Lasted 2 months so far easily…
What the product claims:
(From Clinique’s website)
New richly pigmented shade gives eyes instant brightening power-it’s clinically proven.
Kicks up the volume and length of each and every lash for a look that’s lusher, plusher, bolder.
Pure, deep colour only adds to the impact. Wear it once and you’ll feel naked without it.
How to use:
Gently unscrew the wand (do not pump the wand to get more pigment on – that will only dry the mascara!) and then look a little down and gently run the wand on your lashes. Look up and repeat on the lower lashes.
The way I see it:
A mascara is only its bristles worth!
Take a look at this one’s bristles… they are not very lengthy but densely packed in circular fashion. Each set of bristles are closely placed too.
This creates the magic.
One dip of the wand into the tube gets enough product for a single eye’s application.
You don’t need scour the brush all over your lashes like you do with other mascara’s that promise length or volume.
Just 2 coats in quick succession should do…
There is no lengthening of the lashes (it never claimed too!) but there is definitely decent volume created… which I love!
This makes my eyes look wide open.
There is no clumping or drying up… the formula is good! 🙂
Take a look at the swatch to – its a nice black not very intense though.
Its waterproof and lasts easily for 6-7 hrs. on me..
Definitely a great product from Clinique! But pricing is the issue with me..
INR 1350 for a 3-month product??.. that too a mascara bothers me a little…
By the way, I have started this routine of remembering my mascara’s usage – start with a new one on January 1 until March 31… then as you proceed with every quarter in the year, pick a new one.. so easy to remember it is!
This is definitely an ‘amorous’ product – totally worth it!
The ‘Yay’ factors:
- Functional bristles
- Adds volume to the lashes (impact!)
- Sample size would last 3 months easily
- Opthalmologically tested
The ‘Nay’ factors:
Repurchase/Recommend? – I don’t mind if Vellvette sends me one more of this tube sometime. Though, I don’t think I would pick one out of my pocket.
If you are not bothered about the price factor, you should definitely pick this one.
